DIN Foster Homes are small homes caring for 8 of the most vulnerable children and provide a family and safe environment conducive to their physical and personal development with a good English medium education. Currently, we have 50 homes catering to the needs of 400 children and we want to provide thousands more such homes with the support of our Ambassadors.
DIN Grace Homes provide dignified and professional, institutional care for the destitute on the streets. It is designed on the same model as the Foster Homes where 8 destitute people are housed and provided adequate care, food, clothing, medical care and counseling. Hundreds of such homes are on the anvil with the support from our Ambassadors.
DIN Color the Fallen Stars is a District level program with a cadre of volunteers, staff and one or two ambulances to pick up the destitute from the streets on call or through street presence and look after their rescue, medical care and permanent rehabilitation. The team will monitor the situation of the destitute, existing homes, facilities and resources available with the Government and other stakeholders for its enhancement.
Network support for empowerment of the underprivileged (like a FEVOURED-K and Impact India), spiritual transformation and liberation, inter-religious dialogue through joint celebrations, early learning centres for the underprivileged, Youth Ambassador for Change (YAFC) empowerment, Dream India Network involvement desk (Through Ambassadors for Change) and volunteering are other initiatives undertaken by DIN.
The Born Learning Campaign (BLC) aims to provide holistic development for children between the ages of 0-6, and build school readiness in children between ages 3-6, who go to government-owned anganwadis. The Campaign was launched in September 2012. BLC is currently reaching out to 10,000 children in 122 anganwadis in Bengaluru Urban and Rural districts.
The goal is to ensure holistic childhood development of children below 6 years of age, which includes age-appropriate achievement of health milestones, and early learning to make them school-ready.
We believe education is the only solution to development and DIN will promote education sponsorships (including technical) for the marginalized children and youth. They will either go to the educational institutions close to their homes or avail boarding facilities.
